Dreaming of a love I lost, the day the final bridge was crossed
Sometimes I wish that I could just forget
But the memory lingers yet and it hangs around
Leaving me low and leaving me down
Everywhere I roam, there is nobody home
Even I should know, when it ain't my day there is no other way

I begin to wake up, how wrong it was to cling to you
Sometimes I wish to hold you in my heart
'Cause I can't keep us apart, forgiving you
Was the easiest thing that I ever could do
Everywhere I go, there is no one I know
Even I can see, it's too late now to believe in a vow

As I wander I return, to days gone by there's much to be learned
Sometimes I wish that miracles could be
But at best I fail to see any happening
Some gotta lose and some gotta win
Everywhere I roam, there is nobody home
Even I should know, when it ain't my day there is no other way

Everywhere I go, there is no one I know
Even I can see, it's too late now to believe in a vow
You're leaving right now
